Spaghetti and meatballs!

First you put numbers two and four to work in the kitchen rolling meatballs...

and then you end up with a HUGE pile of meatballs and all you have to do is cook the spaghetti!

First Day of School- Fourth Grade

Number 4 is already in 4th grade, she'll be 9 in December, and I miss her already! I hope she had a nice day and comes home happier than when she left this morning!

This is one of our bookshelves, lots of cookbooks, lots of knitting books, some art and some miscallaneous... I actually just reorganized it all last week, so now you see it like this, but unfortunately it doesn't stay that way! =)

Shawl of Cables by Mari Muinonen

This has been ready some days, but I was hoping to get some photos of someone wearing the shawl... no such luck, it's simply too hot and humid, and I can't get the daughter to touch this warm woolly shawl!
It was a pleasure to knit and it's a beauty... Yet another beautiful pattern from Mari!
The shawl is for my mother, and knit in Rowan Cocoon.

Too big teeth, too small jaw!

These 'little' teeth were torn out of Number 3's mouth today! Look at the size of the roots!?!? He has been blessed with my big teeth and my husband's small jaw, so in order to fit everything something had to be taken out!
I spent a sleepless night worrying and an hour and a half at the dentist getting still more grey hairs! Matteo is brave, and has been through a lot of medical things in his 16 years, but some tears were shed! Growing up into being a man is so hard at times, but he's well on the way! =)
